The Ee Rozullo Revolution
Telugu cinema is going through a revolution of sorts: creatively and commercially. Digital cinema has enabled new, budding filmmakers with no studio backing not only to make a film with their own resources, but also release it successfully and profit it from it. Ee Rozullo, the smash hit that was made on a budget of Rs 60 lakhs and grossed Rs 800 lakhs at box-office is the talk of the industry. This has inspired an army of young filmmakers who out on the streets with digital camera, amateur actors – making their own dream: an independent feature film.
The film was produced on a meager budget, through efficient planning, eliminating all the excesses of big-budget filmmaking. It deserves to have a case study on its own.

Hence, I am going to interview a long-time associate, PRO for all our films, personal publicist for Allu Arjun & Ram Charan – Sreenivas Kumar aka SKN, one of the Producers of the Ee Rozullo

There is no patented secret formula these guys have, yet I have seen some smart things these guys did which could be of help to other filmmakers. I have requested them to reveal it all for the greater benefit of the industry. They were gracious enough to do so. Hope the conversation inspires you as much as I did doing it.
